“PO-32 tonic has certainly added a tonic to our beats in both hardware and software. Separately the hardware and software is superb. Together, they are unbeatable.”

The new Teenage Engineering PO-32 tonic is the latest product in TE’s pocket operator series.  Essentially Sonic Charge’s Microtonic in a pocket operator format, the PO-32 wins MusicTech magazine’s ‘Best Innovation’ of the year award.

"The winner this year can be seen as both a beat-making calculator and an ancient – at least in terms of software – drum synth. But it’s a whole lot more than that. We first came across the PO-32 at NAMM 2017 and quickly realised it was an out-of-this-world concept."

"It was Teenage Engineering taking one of its mobile-calculator- style boxes and recreating a classic beat-making plug-in within it. That’s right, a hardware emulation of software – surely the very reverse of what has been happening in our industry over the last two decades!"
